The Spirit to Soar: Lt Col Barry Bridger's Story of Hope
"A book's been written called the spirit to soar. And it's about the true story of former orphan and POW lieutenant colonel Barry bridger, U.S. Air Force, retired, colonel brazier, I am also a lieutenant colonel in the United States Air Force as well. Finished it got 20 years and so we'll see if I make it that way. Then you got Jim, Peterson. Jim is with us, and he is on that other blue, a little bit darker below the navy side, which I actually started in. But I spent more of my time with the green guys down at camp Pendleton when I was there as a chaplain, but folks, guys, it's good to have you all with us. This has been an exciting I got to look over the book. And let me just tell you, Jim for riding it, but Barry for sir for you and what you've been through. Thank you both for service and I'm looking forward to some discussion here. So am I let it rip? Here we are too. I love it. Well, let's start off jam almost start off with you on the riding of the book. You ride in the book about why you started it, but you chose it to be a biography, but also a lifeless and explain that a little bit. Well, you know, Malcolm gladwell wrote a book called outliers. And he talks about people who do extraordinary things. So started out, I've observed very known very over 30 years now. And I've observed him in the things that he does, I knew a story, but I didn't know it all that well. And once I learned his story, I told him, one day I met a writer biography in that process. I opened up the discussion of this biography saying that berry's been an inspiration in my life. I've learned so much and so a publicist said, it's a life lesson book. So we put out 17 life lessons that I've learned from Barry's life. And he's had a tremendous impact on my life.

"The mortgage lending crisis in that way only gladwell can. A captivating story that borders on conspiracy theory, but appears to be founded on research and investigative journalism. The audience was enraptured. The man is a master storyteller. At the end, gladwell took questions. My friend David raised his hand and said, I worked in the company you're talking about, and the facts you have are wrong. I wasn't there, but I imagine the attention was palpable. I know what it feels like to be contested in public on a stage and it's not something I would call pleasant. But instead of being defensive or argumentative, gladwell seemed delighted. Shall we grab coffee? Gladwell wanted to know everything. Hungry for where his facts were incorrect, curious as to why and grateful that my friend David pointed them out. He devoured the reading my friend gave him and ended up revising the ideas he was working on to include the new information. And the two parted ways glidewell gets a lot of flack for his storytelling. He's either praised as a genius or write it as a fool. I like him, and I'll tell you why, but it requires jumping back a few years to when outliers came out. In the book, gladwell cited a study that he claims that 10,000 hours was the magic number that got you to mastery. If you spent 10,000 hours playing piano or singing, that's when you go from good to on believable. Allegedly. The details, the least interesting part of the book, in my opinion, but a lot of people clung on to this particular point because it appeared to be evidence of the American Dream. It's not a matter of talent, you just got to put in the Everyone in their moms started citing the study and debunking natural talent. And my circles it became the rally cry for toxic, hustle, culture. Get in your hours, hustle. We all know now, it's not true. The 10,000 hours rule is false, or rather incomplete. Business Insider was one of a bajillion media outlets that profited from character assassinating gladwell for it using fun headlines like new study destroys Malcolm gladwell's 10,000 rule. On theory is no big deal if new research debunks all the research. In fact, that's the point. That's how the scientific method works. In gladwell's case, he allegedly took some liberties with what he found in the research, and that is a legitimate problem, but your job is not to take everything you read as Bible, even what I write. Challenge, contest,.

Discover the thrilled that awaits at GM dot com. Everybody in. Can you think of some examples of times where community successfully went from I to we in ways that we can learn from and trying to do that in this moment now? Yeah. Well, there's a bunch of examples, but one simple one would be one of the things that turns the corner on smoking is the introduction of the idea of the dangers of secondhand smoke. We've been telling the smoker for a generation that they are endangering their own life, and we had very limited success in getting people to stop smoking under those circumstances. And then the conversation shift, and we literally stopped talking about not talking, exclusively about the smoker, and we started talking about the people around the smoker. And it became a matter of collective responsibility. I'm old enough to remember when you could smoke in the back of an airplane. They had a smoking section, the back of an airplane. That stopped, not because we were trying to prolong the lives of the people smoking in the back of our airplanes, but because everyone said, oh wait a minute. What about all the non smokers? It's about creating a safe environment and congenial environment for them. That was a huge shift and really successful because, you know, it was a way of reaching smokers and just say you can smoke, but you can't smoke in the back of the airplane. They may have fell invulnerable when it came to the individualized risks because most smokers do not die of. Lung cancer, a lot, too, but not most of them, right? So it's for most people, it's a pretty remote. Do you think that that messaging is the only way to truly win the war during this pandemic? Because again, the majority of us have experienced remote misses, but now we're all making personal decisions as to how we're going to engage with the community and how we're going to be protective of those around us. So I guess the big great question I'm asking is, how do we take this information and use it to end the war on COVID? Yeah. We stop and to my mind the great frustrating thing in public discourse in this country around a whole series of issues is we've fallen so in love with the language of personal freedom and responsibility that we forgotten the power of collective appeals to community. We don't use that language anymore. No one ever says. It's not about you. It's about your service to others. Since we're being charged today, the whole, the whole message of the New Testament of is about do unto others as you would have to do. I mean, not even the New Testament, the Old Testament too. The whole message is about some awareness of your place in a community, right? It's not about you. That is the single most powerful message in human history. And we've suddenly get into these arguments where it's on one side saying, well, it's my personal choice and freedom. And the other person, the other side of saying, well, you need to be a rational actor. Stop with the eyes already. Like enough with I love it. I love it run when we get churchy. Let's get Churchill every time we do these. Don't mess with me, man. I'll cover you with scripture every time, man. I'm the one who in the script you're not you. I was waiting for you to come back at me. I'm like, I'm doing low do I walk to the valley of the shadow of death? I got crickets on your end. Malcolm thank you so much for being with us again.

"They can not be heroes, or they can be chumps. While our responses to the fear of an impending battle and its immediate physical threats may be quite different from our responses to the fear of a global pandemic, there's a way in which they're actually kind of similar. Community approach. We've fallen so in love with the language of personal freedom and responsibility that we've forgotten the power of collective appeals to community. Here's my conversation with Malcolm gladwell. We're going to examine the parallels and intersections of fear, vulnerability, and responsibility when it comes to war and a global pandemic. Malcolm welcome back to solvable. It's great to have you here once again. Thank you. So I want to tell you about the my earliest introduction to you. It was in 2013 and you were on the Ted radio hour and you're giving an interview with guy Roz about your book. David and Goliath because you had just done a TED Talk on that. Do you remember that? I do, yeah. Great. I liked it because, you know, as a self proclaimed church guy, you gave it very different definition to David and Goliath the battle would actually happen. And I love this book. I bought it, it's one of my favorites. I think it's, you know, a lot of people talk about blinking outliers and other books you wrote, but David and Goliath is by far my favorite. And I bought the book, thinking I'm just going to get all these, you know, insights about other dogs and bisf fits and all that, which I did, and I thought it was going to be purely based on David and Goliath. But then I got to one chapter and it was chapter 5 and a Canadian psychiatrist who wrote this book called the structure of morale named JT mccurdy talks about the bombings in Britain. Can you recap that? Yeah, so this is, by the way, thank you for the kind words about David and glad. David glad happens to be my favorite of all my books as well. So this is something that has always not just fascinated me, but puzzled people for a long time, which was, at the start of the Second World War, the British knew that the Germans had a fleet of bombers, and they also knew the state of their defenses against polymers were such that there was nothing they could do to stop the Germans. So the first thing they did, of course, was they a lot of children who lived in London were moved to the countryside. The second thing they did was they got the fire trucks ready for what would be, you know, all kinds of all kinds of the normal things. More than that, they became convinced that the devastation would be such that the population of London would panic. And so they did things like they converted a whole series of buildings on the outskirts of London to psychiatric makeshift psychiatric hospitals because they figured so many people would be traumatized. They assumed that some incredible percentage of the population of London would flee the city. They really worried that the war would be over. Panic and London would be such and would spread the rest of the country and people would see that the Germans could just come and bomb at will, and they thought, you know, this could be this could be it for us. They were terrified. From top to bottom. So the bombing comes in the fall of 1940, the famous blitz, right? And it lasts about 8 months and the Germans come not every night, but there's one stretch where they come for 57 consecutive nights. And they drop tens of thousands of tons of high explosive bombs on London. They damage a million buildings. They wipe out much of the east end. And the panic never comes. And nobody can believe it. They're like what happened? Why is everyone? In fact, not around is a panic dot com. But like, after a little while, people get so over it that they start going back to their business. And, you know, they go to work. They go to the pubs at night. They party they do all the things. Young people are on the streets. And as you can imagine, every psychiatrist, social scientists, psychologists and England at the time, is like driving around London saying I am witnessing something that makes no sense. Right? We've terror. The Germans have terrorized the population of London. And there's like kids playing football on the streets and there's couples like going dancing at night and there's people dancing drinking in pubs and the bombs are falling. It's this completely bizarre event to kick off the war. And so this British psychiatrist comes along JT mccurdy, the guy you mentioned at the top. And he tries to explain what happened. And I think that's what that's the thing that sounds like the drew your eye to that chapter. Yes. Yes. And that's what gets me because when I read this, I thought about it all the time when I first read this and this was back in 2013. I thought about it all the time. And I remember he divided them into three groups to direct hits and those are the people that are dead. People that just didn't make it through the bombing. Then there were near misses. Those were people who were experiencing the devastation of the bomb but did not experience death. Or even people who were close to someone who experienced the devastation of the bomb family member, whatever. Then there were the majority of London experience what he called remote misses. Yes. Which is me. You heard about the bomb a few feet over. You felt the rumbling, you felt the building shake, but you didn't experience any devastation. And what are the quotes that you wrote the book was that the morale of the community depends on the reaction of the survivors? Because the majority of the community is experiencing remote misses, they have this experience of feeling invulnerable as opposed to the people who experience near misses who they actually have a higher sense of fear or a highest sense of actual danger when the bombs fall. Yeah. So yeah, he does this thing, which is in retrospect, I think it's incredibly brilliant. He says that your reaction to a traumatic event is a function of your proximity to it. So, you're right. There's the people who are most proximate to a traumatic event are the ones who are killed by it. They're presumably the ones who are the most terrified in the moment before they died, but they're dead. Right? Yeah. They can't spread. We don't know how they felt. They can't spread their feelings. They have no impact or gone, right? Second group, near misses, they're the ones who the bomb drops in the other room, and they crawl out of the wreckage. Those people have traumatized. There's no doubt about that. That's like, that's like you're in a car accident and your car is totalled and they take you out with a jaws of life. That's your near miss, right? That'll stay with you. Has that ever happened to you by the way? You're in a car accident. Not like that. No, I have not either. I know some people who have and man that stays with you. That's like some serious. I actually have a personal near miss story, which is, I, when I was a kid, and funny enough, this is not traumatic vapor traumatic for my father. When I was a kid, I was hiking with my father in the winter on this gorge when Canada. And I'm about 7. And there's sheer sheet of ice down the side of the gorge that runs all the way to a frozen not a frozen over, but a freezing cold, fast moving river. I slip,.

"I'm Ronald young junior. The rational response to being asked to fight in a war is to go crazy. That, of course, is the voice of pushkin cofounder, Malcolm gladwell. And I invited Malcolm back to solvable because I've recently been thinking a lot about something I read that he published back in 2013. His book, David and Goliath. The subtitle is underdogs misfits and the art of battling giants. It's a book that takes a closer look at events in which one outcome is greatly favored over another and discusses why sometimes those outcomes don't turn out as expected. This episode is a little different from our typical solvable and that we don't exactly solve a problem here. But in the spirit of the show, we're very optimistic in our discussion of a big idea. And as you listen, you'll begin to get a sense of exactly why we chose now to have this particular discussion. Imagine you're living in Britain in the late 1930s. Germany is preparing to attack your country. It's the start of the Second World War. The military is mobilizing, preparations are being made for mass casualties. You're debating whether or not you should stay in the city or move to the countryside until the dangerous past. The British military command does a kind of projection of what they think is going to happen. And they think they're going to have 600,000 dead. 1.2 million wounded and mass panic, they think that no one's going to go to work, which means that all of industrial production in England will cease. They think that the army will be useless because the army will be spent all of its time trying to keep the civilians like from going nuts. They really think it's over. The fear and uncertainty in the air are palpable. But what are you going to do? Can you still go to work? What about Friends and family? Will they be safe? What is going to happen to all of you? And I know these questions may feel.

I think that what worked before work with you. Some guys aren't used to being told. This is what i need you to do. In order for you to orgasm and things like that when you can tell a guy what to do it can turn him on also and it also helps you and so that's when it's time for you to really speak up and let them know what it is that he needs to do.

Yee charlene's guy. We oughta breakfast club was still kicking. Malcolm glad well show me. And what do you think can be done to make huge. We have to get rid of the ranking system. I think we have to and i think. Hp's are starting to do this. They have to explain to people what they're doing. And what makes them special. There is a real flourishing. Right now of. I think of hp see us on a number of you know prominent people you know. Kenya bears allows who Who shows i love. He's g he's genius. He cares about what you think so much feelings. Mutual with him. But as a whole you know this is a whole class of really prominent people in this country who've come out of that. This is an opportunity for hp to stand up and say you know we're doing something different something special and providing An educational environment and a culture that is not available elsewhere in there in the ed school system and if they can make that argument powerfully and publicly. I think there's going to be there will be shift. You know people will starting to happen. People are going to give money to the schools. The starting to get the recognition. They deserve gave a million forgotten. Can you hear a million and one east. we see. He went to one of the atlanta schools. He went to not clark. Did he go to car or yeah. He went to one of those in the you know. The morehouse more squadrons filming in that area. Yeah yeah let me ask you. Do you think with everything. That's going on with with The fact that players have to go to college for one year to go into the league. You think that's going to affect any of this at all because now you know you know colleges are built on sports and now the fact that these players might not have to go to college anymore. I mean that money is going to be there anymore. They can't rape those artists and just make money off. they can go to the g. League immediately get five hundred thousand dollars that will affect ranking it all. That's really interesting. I hadn't thought about that I mean it creates a problem for schools. That have you know. Think of a school like duke which you know used to be a kind of forgotten. School and south now is considered to be one of the crown jewels of american higher. Ed they part of that was built around there. Right so You know when basketball doesn't matter a school like duke. What happens to do. I don't know the answer to that question. I i mean it's an interesting thought. I mean maybe basketball means something at these schools. Maybe it's all like for your kids and the quality of the plays a little less but we get to enjoy it in a different way. I don't. I don't think the i'm sort of i'm in favor of the of these changes in the g. league in particular. I think maybe it's time to separate the elite players. Everybody else and just enjoy college. That was way hugh's a do a lot better as far as ranking in kids wanting to go if light. Let's say let's say you're star basketball play. You play high school. You know you to hugh nine hundred. Ten people are not gonna see. Yeah that's right so you go to school like duke or florida and you know you will get that airtime mazda. They get a look that can get you into the league so yeah until they changed that and we find a way to change that maybe b. e. t. aaron some of the hp you games. I think we'll always have that from. Yeah yeah no. I'm in imagine if lake kevin durant had gone to morehouse instead of texas. I mean like that's that would that would really have changed the national equate. I sort of think. I mean your kevin durant spoof. You only need kevin union anybody else if you just give him four other guys and it's fine by the way of these guys are only going to go to college for you go to. Hbu now you can make money off your jersey and stuff like that like it would be an room but more than that and you could have an experience an imortant experience a real educational experience and maybe go back and finish your your degree when you're done playing like this like my last question on abc news but aside from the ranking list. How do you think people view. Hpc's on a grand scale in america. Well there's a difference between the way they were historically cause remember. Their their roots are in a period where where the schools were were segregated. So you know they were they were they started as kind of also-ran where Where after americans went because they couldn't go to other schools not also ends is the wrong word but that's the way why people viewed them right I think that like i said before. I think that attitude is now changing and people are becoming more aware of what is special and powerful about experience of going to these schools And i think people are the other thing is we're getting. I hopefully think we're getting away from a model which says That is the those kind of one-size-fits-all notion of quality right. It's you know the my real problem with rankings. Is it assumes that you can say that one school is number one at one. School is number two and that holds true for anyone who wants to go to those schools. Just not true right. We got go back to an idea that says there ought to be fifty different kinds of schools that served fifty different kinds of students. That fifty different kinds of cultures. And you need to find the one that matches. What's good for you. I want to ask you about Books real quick that even worth putting out hardcover books anymore. Because i look at the number you did for talking to strangers audio. Isn't even worth it not for you. I mean you should be. You should be doing. These kinds of menu already have an audience. That wants to hear you. Listen to you right. That's used to listening to you that i and you have You know things to say. I mean i think for. If you're if you're writing a history of the roman republic i would say that's a hardcover book But if the stuff you wanted to talk about and given your position. I think in your you should be an audio first-person atmosphere books all the time. You would listen to it on your book. I honestly i can't believe she's i mean as be wise great books. Look i because. I have libraries every room in my house like i have bookshelves and everything and i collect books like art you know and i like to have them and i like to get them like signed and keep them like.

"Who already have everything. I think it's hard for some people to even admit that they have privilege because if they admit that they have privilege and they feel like maybe i'm inferior and i'm not getting what i'm getting just because i'm good are talented. I think that's why. I you have to admit that you even have privilege is hard to do. But i don't think they care. I went to a predominantly white high school right They didn't care. It was the black state at the black table. The black parked when blacks park the blacks played basketball on this field. That's what it was italians on this on. One side the asians on one side and all african-americans. All the black people on the other side. But that's what it was. Nobody cared until it was basketball. Game time other than that. Nobody cared until i went to. Abc you wouldn't Yeah yeah outta. What all are we got more with. Author malcolm glad when we come back. Don't move is the breakfast club. Good morning morning. everybody is. tj envy. Angela charlemagne guy. We oughta breakfast club still kicking it with malcolm. Glad well show me yo. How do you think. Rich white kids could could benefit from attending hvac. You would also benefit the b. c. you by attending positive way. But how would it make the rankings of the hughes. Go oh you know. The biggest rankings is the reputation some so a college president gets to rank all the other colleges in the country scale of one to five. If they see a lot of rich white kids at school they just assume it's a good school and they give it a five if they see a lot of kids at a school. They assume it's a poor school and they give it a two right. So i was joking in my parks by saying look if a school dillard all of a sudden had lots of white students they get a better reputation score because people would see all this. This rich white kids there. Let's give them a higher. It's literally that it's live. It is. I am not wow. I'm not being sarcastic or ironic. Here this is exactly the way it works so questions like let's say in the future like you know all of these you know black people who have wealth now in their kids are rich and they start going to these. Hpc us will not make the reputation score go up or is other matter that they're rich to still depends how strong you think. This kind of racism still lives in his country. Is it possible for a lot of Wealthy you know white college presidents to look at a school that educates black people and think it's a quality institution you. How how optimistic are you sean. This curriculum curriculum. You've not in these rankings. Should this i mean that's not what interests us now. The game's about right now. What was your interest in looking into. Abc's because a couple of reasons one is i you know i have is ongoing fascination with how screwed up american higher education is so i started out by saying you know when i talk to People who went to. Hp's us they say exactly what you said. They had this overwhelmingly positive variants. And then i looked on the us news rankings. And i saw that. These schools are at the bottom right so my first question was how is it. A school can do such a good job. Educating its students do they come away saying that was one of the most important experiences of my life and simultaneously ranked at the bottom. Right does two things. Don't there's something wrong with that. Was one reason. I wanted to to look at it. Too quiet resolve that That contradiction right if but surely if the students who attend a school love their experience that means the school must be good. Like that's just about the most important thing that matters but more than that The more subtle ways in which discrimination persists country that you know it's I think what's been happening over. The last couple of years is it were finally As a country waking up to the fact that they're layers upon layers upon layers upon layers of discrimination in all manner of different realms. We got a spotlight finally on police violence summer. But i mean that's been two for one hundred years right but like it takes a long time for people to focus on it and to start to peel away the layers and say you know it doesn't solve the problem if you just hire a couple of black police officer or you have to look closely in it. That's why i want to look at the. Us news thing because that was an example of a highly discriminatory practice that persists because people don't understand the assumptions. That drive it. So that's kind of. I think you have to be actively engaged in Peeling back more and more layers of this. You can't stop and say we're done. That's the thing that always drives me crazy as people who stop and say we're done gotta keep working at it. What what flaws in iowa. Everybody to go. Listen to you. Know the project dillard podcast revisionist history. What flaws in the algorithm. 'cause historically black colleges the ring solo a couple. The two that we've talked about are the critical ones. Three one is that there are a number of different ways in which your ranking the school depends upon how much money you have And you know schools that serve predominantly african. american population are going to have less money than you know ivy league schools. Right just look school. Like dillard's got down to one hundred million dollars. Harvard's got forty some odd billion right. So you get penalized for that to you. Get penalized for Lower graduation rates and graduation rates are not a function of how good a job. The school is doing it. Educating students they are a function of the economic circumstances students. If you choose to educate students from poor backgrounds you will not have a ninety five percent graduation rate. It's not going to happen right. So that algorithm rewards you for having a high graduation rate which means it rewards you for educating the kind of kids who can afford day for four years and not have any family or whatever who aren't working like you've talked to a kid at dillard you just ask them. Do you have a part time job. Some of to partner heart is you guys. I mean you know how hard it is to stay in school if you you leave in every day at three o'clock to work on one of your two jobs and you're working on weekends. You can't do your homework. Do you know how many kids at you know princeton. I've got heartful got part time jobs when they don't right so that fact alone it's a lot easier to graduate ninety five percent of your students. None of them are part time jobs. And you can't do those Free internships to when your family has money. You can travel and go if you live somewhere else. You know. Go to another city to be able to do internship whereas if you don't have that advantage of that privilege you have to pay job in the summer. Doing whatever you can know. It's we're not so. These rankings are not acknowledging the reality of kids from less-privileged pacmans black or white right. It's like it is a struggle to afford your tuition and stay in school. If you're in the bottom half it is easy. If you're in the top right so you don't give points to a school just for enrolling all the easy kids right. This is the thing that drives me nuts. If you're educating a bunch of kids who went to the finest high schools in the country and you have you. Have you know a ton of resources at your disposal and on and on and on you job is really really easy. It's not that hard. Right like the the i mean. It's like you shouldn't be. We shouldn't be patting you on the back right for that. We do to so many times. It's like pat people on the back for like you know catering to rich people. I'm sorry it's like that's the easiest thing where you're going to go to school. Sometimes you have to choose. Maybe a school that is offering you a financial support as opposed to school. That maybe you wanted to go there but it's too expensive. It's just amazing to me. How miracle finds a way to middle finger to the poor on every level every level not enough to algorithm affects the ranking of abc news. Is it affecting. The ranking of good predominantly white institutions. That are that are popular it will. The.

Okay knocking dirty. He deserves it since. We're talking about new york city. They going to require proof of vaccination to get into restaurants fitness centers and endure entertainment venues announced this yesterday. The city will start enforcing this program on september thirteenth. So according to the mayor about fifty five percent of residents are fully vaccinated. And that doesn't seem very high but it's higher than the total vaccination rate in the us which is about fifty percents. Here is the blasio. The key to nyc pass will be a first in the nation approach. It will require vaccination for workers and customers in indoor dining in indoor fitness facilities. Indoor entertainment facilities this is going to be a requirement. The only way to patronize these. Establishments indoors will be if you're vaccinated at least one dose time for people to see vaccination as literally necessary to living a good full and healthy life long gone less well the start september thirteenth and broadway theaters have announced that they will require vaccinations for the audience and for the staff at least through the month of october one of businesses. And start pushing back against that of his stars. Impacting business like if there's just not enough vaccinated people to sustain a good business pushback. I don't think i. I mean i don't think even if they do i don't think it matters. I mean i think they're gonna require it. It is what it is at this point and having at least one shot matter because i got a home who got one shot and he going through it right now a code. I mean this is saying the requirements are does. Protect you someway but vaccinations again even if you're fully vaccinated. It doesn't fully protect you. Six i write the.

And so now they're saying this is from the cdc so it's targeted vixen moratoriums until early october. That's if you have a high or substantial transmission of covert in that area.

Churchill and senior british brass. The bar mafia were nuts. They they just thought this whole thing is nonsense. There's no way they can hit where they can hit. There's no way it's all a dream. What the germ. The british thought was. The only way to use airpower was to flatten your enemies cities. You go in you drop as many bombs as you can. You don't worry about where they're gonna land you just figure if you drop enough of them they will do such damage and kill so many people that your enemy will surrender so they have then off are all about precision and using the smallest amount of force possible. The british are about the opposite. They're like who cares about precision. Who cares about you know surgical strikes who cares. Just go in there and like open up the bombay. Just let it all. Go and don't worry about where it's landing just. If you have enough planes in enough bombs you'll do so much damage to something. The trinity will give up. All of this begs the question.

But are there any consequences for the cop for the first time we take you inside the secret investigations that show how police protections in california shield officers from accountability listened on our watch a podcast from npr and k.

That's been with us since the beginning of time you'll out examples throughout history. Do you think it's worse now than it's ever been. Yes so obviously is worse because for most of human history you you rarely encountered strangers you lived entirely within the world of manley clan community And then it shows sort of shift in the modern era where all of a sudden you're the world is opened up and you've confront for the first time people for whom you have no frame of reference and. I think this is really the kind of crisis that i'm describing in the book. Which is that the strategies that we developed over the course of hundreds of thousands of years for dealing with people that we know really well Don't work when we're dealing with you. We don't know so the concert example would be as human beings. We use people's body language and facial expressions as a way to interpret their emotions. And when dealing with someone who. I know very well that works. Because i have a whole body of experience and know all of the particular idiosyncrasies that make up your emotional presentation so there's a storyteller my book about my dad.

He's seventy five years old big bushy beard and might someone has a young man as a knife mother's throat and my father naked. Seventy five points at the guy says get out now and the that'll do it and the guy leaves now. Oh oh there. He leaves for number reasons. One is unexpectedly terrifying to see naked. Seventy five year old englishman but to jamaican could have been different to the second reason is a which was given to me by on the breakfast club by angelie. Who said her excellent. Oh nobody wants to fight a naked man. And i was like. That's so true you don't wanna find a naked man data next book. I thought that was fantastic. And so it's like wait a minute. So if i'm threatening situation i should just take off my clothes. She's just take people just going to back up. she's not worth it. But no but the reason that's relevant to this is. My father was someone who emotion negative emotions did not show his face so the and that was one of his peculiarities. And if you know my father you would know that you would know that. When he was terrified he would have been in that moment. You they would be zero tehran's but the dude with the knife doesn't know that sees what looks like a stone cold killer like winning at say she's also nude runs right but if you don't know so if you don't know my father fundamentally misinterpret him in that moment right so there is a classic example. I talk about this. What i call the problem of transparency. Which is with strangers. We are reduced to to the assumption that facial expressions are a authentic and reliable representation of internal emotions and the single powerful factor. Human beings is that that is not true is in you know. We all think that when we are angry our jaws drop our remember. When we're angry our brows furrow in surprise our jaws dropping arise grow widening. That is not the case like that is a fiction is perpetuated by actors on in hollywood movies but in real life all of us have incredibly a incredibly diverse array of ways of representing emotion. And when you and we can mask them very easily yes yes and so when you're dealing with strangers you're gonna make mistakes unless you have some understanding of the context in which behavior is happening. Not just the immediate context but the historical context. Unless you've read your books. Let's have some appreciation for the cultural nuances of america. You cannot make sense of a stranger this description for this book. It's called a challenging and controversial excursion through history psychology in scandals. I found the controversial to be particularly true. There are some stories that you take a second look at in this book that i think a lot of folks would say maybe. Don't take a second look at that because we know exactly right and wrong and this is bad and that was a bad man. I'm talking specifically about the rape case if you discuss in the book Lay out the case and why you wanted to revisit that when it seemed like a thing when i saw it on the news i was like. That's pretty simple and straightforward him. Lock him up. You know what i'm saying. So i was interested in conversations that go awry between strangers and so i was thinking about what are all the kind of relevant categories and police stops will be one but i also thought the campus sexual sell cases clearly. Belong here Because they differ. From if you so. I began to read accounts of campus sexual assault cases and focus on for this book. It's the stanford so they get to that in a moment. But i began before that happened because many if you read these and there are. There are tens of thousands of documented campus sexual assault every year. So this is a voluminous body of these things and if you start reading accounts many of them begin the same way which is they are to a man and a woman at a party and they are engaged in some kind of thing that people engage the two parties. Getting to know someone who you know. Didn't over the course of the evening. Something badly wrong right so they so. I wanted to say i wanted to understand okay. Is there something here that we can understand and make sense of so. I began to talk to people who studied these cases and every one of them said the same thing to me which was well. You can't talk about these cases unless you talk about alcohol..
Michael Lewis in Conversation with Malcolm Gladwell and Jacob Weisberg
"I was asked to moderate a panel with two of my oldest friends. Malcolm gladwin jacob weisberg. We've known each other since the nineteen eighties when we were all young writers in the magazine. Business malcolm jacob for now the co founders of pushkin industries. The company that produces against the rules which is now underway by the way pushkin also makes a bunch of other great shows like malcolm zone revisionist history and the happiness lab with dr lori. Santos i've been watching on the sidelines over the past year as malcolm and jacob started the company so i was really happy to have an excuse to ask them all kinds of nosy questions about what they've learned about running a business together and the challenges they face and the challenges right now in our quarantine world will those are unique. You'll get to hear a little bit about that. Here's our conversation. 'cause i don't actually know the story so i would love to know how you decided to start pushing shake right. It was jacobs a star. Well i'd started one podcast company already. Which was panoply which came out of slate but as things evolve panoply turned into a technology company. I thought i was starting mainly a content company and one of the shows we'd started with revisionist history With malcolm that show was doing really well and there were some other shows. I was really interested in doing so was sort of when the earlier company under Ceo i'd hired. Who i thought was making a good decision. Wanted to make a pivot that i said. Hey maybe it's time that document. I started our own company and only do what we wanna do. I was on holiday with my family in. Can't remember where. I was somewhere in your italy in italy and jacob was in some. I think if i can tell that you truly horrible health live the villain said and he said he said that he he summoned. We do something crucial when you talk about says. I drove halfway across italy. Show up in this horrible house but road and then he likes sat outside a little chairs and had coffee and he said i wanna start a company. That's out began. What did you say yes right away. Yeah struck me as well. The backstory about this is that jacob has been. I've known jacob for thirty five years and through for some significant portion of this. I would always say jacob. I don't know why you wanted a journalist. You'd be a really great businessman. if you just. This is what you could make a huge amount of money. We could all get rich. Jacob forgotten but i would always worry that if i when i said that i was insulting him because what he really wanted to be was a writer which was saying was a bad writer and i thought better business fan
Malcolm Gladwell: I Am
"Malcom gladwin is a stone cold genius who loves A grade sports argument. I went onto bill. Simmons podcast and I had this totally ludicrous thing that I want to talk about. Which was I was like? Could a basketball team made up of Nigerians? An all time basketball team made up of Nigerians be the greatest basketball time and then I ended it. I amended until as I said all right I have to corollaries one is. I'm going to add west Indians because almost Indians not all mostly I'm Jamaican. Where am I what am I people from? We're from originally like I'm Ibo right most Jamaicans cable so I add the Caribbean and then I said and just refund. That's also add the rest of Southern Africa and then I construct the students. Tony Ridiculous Caribbean so busy. I say out can Africa and the Caribbean put together an all time team. It's better than an african-american team a euro team at a white American team. It's the third one. Maybe not. The answer is yes. We don't have time to do this but I will convince you. I can't convince you to Africa and the Caribbean in basketball. All Time team and also your co you qualify by or Nigeria. Will I started? I start with all of ethnic did not all? I'm only adding. I added Southern Africa. 'cause I WANNA have Steve Nash and Joel Embiid on my team. Wade Steve Nash. Born in Johannesburg. He's Canadian. No my rule is that you. Are you qualify? Virtue of your parents. Place a birth. So get all of Steve. Nash Who Play Thompson. Really? He's Bamyan are are are taking. Tim. Duncan Tim Duncan Hang Hau Kim Elijah Akeem Joel Embiid Yoenis Clay Andre iggy Dow Victor Depot Drink Igwe Dolla. Where's he from Nigeria okay? He's full on your deal and Steve. Nash I got a back court of Nash and Thomson. I got a frontcourt of Dunkin embiid. Jaanus Patrick Ewing forward a okay. Right right right right from the islands. This really is in the island. This team is insane when Patrick's coming off the bench. But how just doesn't matter but Kim Jaanus and but sure but but the other team has Lebron Kobe. Japan Michael I know. Just for starters and Steph curry just restarting Potanin Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell. Just just try go ahead. That's the African American teachers. Try Playing Lebron Jordan.

You cannot Jordan Jordan and abroad and Kobe on the court at the same time out of your mind. You have all centers you have one forward you have you have guards and a bunch of centers. You got a problem with that because the modern game nobody in the known you already. Janis on Lebron an WHO's covering Jordan who's covering stats got covering step. I got clay and Andrea Diallo. Who in their day or two of the greatest lockdown defenders of the last twenty five years in the NBA? I got a clay and national or two of the pure as shooters and I have argued with the greatest defensive front court in the history of basketball. I Have Yoenis Hekim Akeem Patrick embiid.
